Breaking New Info: Oregon shooting: Gunman was student in class where he killed 9
The man who gunned down nine people at an Oregon community college was enrolled in the class where the fatal shootings occurred, Douglas County Sheriff John Hanlin said Friday.
Hanlin was asked whether the shooter was a student at Umpqua Community College. He didn't have the information at the time, but later updated a web page with confirmation Chris Harper-Mercer was enrolled there.
Rita Cavin, interim president of the school, told CNN that Harper-Mercer, 26, was enrolled in English and theater classes. The gunman initially opened fire in an English class, she said.
